Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Ultimate Challenge Voyage

DDiabetes WA - Georgia and Kirsteniabetes WA are pleased to once again sponsor two young people (14- to 20-years-old) with type 1 diabetes who wish to participate in the Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Ultimate Challenge Voyage in 2016.

Places on this year’s voyage have kindly been funded by Newman’s Own Foundation.

The Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation is the only tall ship in Australia to offer a sail-training experience specifically designed for young people with limitations that may prevent them from participating on a standard program. As there is an onboard doctor, a number of young people with type 1 diabetes have participated in previous years.

The voyage departs Fremantle on 14 November and arrives back in Fremantle on 18 November. This is an incredible and unique opportunity on offer for any young person that may not generally have these types of experiences on offer to them.

To submit your expression of interest or if you would like any further information please email community@diabeteswa.com.au
